Question about Frigidaire FGQ332ES Gas Dryer
Hello- First, BE SURE the dryer is unplugged, and then be sure again. You will need to release the two retaining clips that attach the top the the front. They are located under the front of the lid a couple inches in from each side. The best tool is a putty knife or something a flat paint scraper. Place the tool between the top of the front panel and the lid and pry up a little bit in order to see the clips, they are about an inch wide. You have to press hard right into in (its like a flat metal spring) and pry up at the same time and the lid should release. Repeat on the other side. They can be a bit tricky but just don't force it too much. Once the clips are released the top hinges towards the back. There should be a wiring harness that goes to the timer and switches and one that goes to the door switch, these have plastic connectors that should separate them as a unit. There is one screw on each edge of the interior of the front panel that holds it to the main dryer cabinet, take these out and pull the front panel forward and up and the panel should separate itself from the cabinet. You have to be careful when you put the front panel back on that it slides in on the bottom retainer clips and that the top of the drum is positioned correctly over the felt on the front panel. Just don't force anything. Hope this helps, best regards.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the power cord from the wall outlet.
Open the dryer door. Remove the screws located along the inside of the doorway with the Phillips screwdriver.
3Pull the top part of the front panel away from the MDE5500AY dryer to disconnect it. Lift the front panel up to disconnect it from the metal clips on the dryer cabinet.
Unplug the wire connector leading to the door switch.
Unscrew and remove the four screws connecting the front panel to the rest of the cabinet. Lift the front panel up and away from the dryer to remove it.
Pull the idler pulley toward the left to relieve tension in the belt. Slide the belt off of the idler pulley and the Neptune dryer drum.
Route the new dryer belt around the drum and along the pulley system. Release the idler pulley to restore proper tension in the belt. Rotate the drum to ensure the belt is positioned properly.
Replace the front panel onto the dryer cabinet. Replace the four screws that connect the front panel to the cabinet of the MDE500AY dryer.
Plug the wire connector into the door switch assembly. Lower the front panel down into its original position.
